The latter two interchanges play an important role in the future success of northern Hamilton County. 276th is used by companies such as Beck’s Hybrids and Reynolds Farm Equipment, both of which are big employers to the northern region of not only our county but surrounding counties as well.
For the 236th Street intersection, a traffic light prompts a decision: West to Sheridan or East to Cicero. At one point, a “Michigan left” was being discussed for this location, but common sense prevailed. I think we’ve all come to agree that the only things “Michigan” that Indiana needs is Jim Harbaugh (this is where Ohio State fans stop reading) or maybe the Tim Allen voiceover in the “Pure Michigan” promotions.
If not strategically and proactively approached, it changes the way Northern Hamilton County looks in the future as well as what existing businesses do to continue to grow. I encourage you to let your county and state elected officials know that this is an important project for Hamilton County as well.
Let’s hope you get more of a Willie Nelson, “On the Road Again” versus “Hit the Road, Jack.”
